Hide Thread option in the list view

Hi! This is a great forum! Thanks for the hard work getting it here

One feature I feel like I've seen on other vBulletin sites is the ability to hide a thread while in the list view. Currently on CF we have to open the thread, then select "Ignore this thread" from the "Thread Tools" menu. I browse CF almost exclusively by using the "New Posts" link, and because of the large population on CF there are many threads that update frequently and stay in the New Posts view. Many of these are not entirely pertinent to me and I've been setting some of the more active ones to Ignore but it's rather a pain to go through all those steps when there could be a way to do it from the New Posts view.

Any chance that could become an option? I wonder how much thread/forum hiding other users do.

Thanks!

Re: Hide Thread option in the list view

I periodically go down the list and put the threads that I have no interest in or that I find annoying on the ignore list. Some threads just refuse to die on their own so I give them a little shove into the cyber grave.

Do you open the thread to do that or is there a way to do it from the list view that I'm somehow not seeing?

Re: Hide Thread option in the list view

Well it seems this is all a waste of effort anyway, as "ignoring" threads/forums just hides them from display but they are still counted into the results per page. When I go to the "New Posts" view I get a reduced number of results because I've hidden various threads and forums from being displayed. Currently on page 1 I get results 1-16, page 2 results 26-39, page 3 is 51-71, etc.
